A thought occurred to me today…What is stopping people from starting their own non-profit insurance company. Given the right number of people, paying half of what they pay now, I am not sure why we couldn’t start a very simple pay-all insurance company. We would have no marketing costs, very few legal fights, and of course, never any lobbying costs. It would be a great place to work, many people would work their simply to be a part of something good. The whole company could have a salary cap, nothing more than say $100,000 a year.
It seems to me if such a model was given to an actuarial expert that a plan could be drawn up, and such a thing could be done without our fucking government and in direct competition (that’s what it’s all about right?) with those monolithic death panels we call our private insurance companies.
So, we at globatron are going to start a page, where you can sign up that you are interested, and if we get 100,000 people signed up, simply stating that if such a plan were possible that you would sign into it, knowing you could always go back to your other insurance, we will then take our list to a set of insurance experts and set up a business plan, at which point, we could take it to some people of good will, you know Steven Spielberg types, who will get it off the ground. Let’s do something people!
